SUPERCONDUCTIVITY by Charlene W. Billings


From Discovery to Breakthrough

by Charlene W. Billings

Pub Date: May 1st, 1991
ISBN: 0-525-65048-2
Publisher: Dutton

Once over lightly: the frantic race to discover materials that exhibit superconductivity at higher and higher temperatures; today's attempt to make practical superconducting machines and circuits. Slightly marred by minor but irritating typos and arithmetic mistakes, and by jumping from topic to topic with little explication, but useful nonetheless. Many attractive, informative photos; index. (Nonfiction. 9+)
